Curtain Wall Systems
Aesthetically pleasing and meet the demand for energy efficiency, serving as a barrier to the elements.
This features a cladding and exterior wall system that is hung on the building structure from floor to floor, and its components are assembled piece by piece on the job site. It is airtight and resistant to water penetration. Its ease of installation makes it one of the most commonly used types of curtain walls.
Unitized (Unit) Panel System
The unitized panel system is a higher quality curtain wall, installed as a panel system of interlocking units that maximize natural light penetration. It contains the same components as a stick-built curtain wall system, but most of the system components are factory-assembled. The unitized system is mainly used in high-rises and allows for quick closure of the building.
Point-Loaded Structural Glazing Systems
Point-loaded structural glazing systems consist of laminated and tempered glass supported by hardware embedded in the glass. This is the premier system of choice for highly transparent entrances, atriums, lobbies and facades. This system eliminates any visible metal framework and offers a variety of available support systems. Several aesthetic options include varying degrees of transparency, stiffness and cost. Product and installation costs are higher than conventional frame-supported curtain wall systems.
